Assassin’s Creed 3: Ubisoft issues microtransaction statement

Assassin’s Creed 3 will support microtransactions, a move that had polarised gamers on either side of the nickel and dime fence. Ubisoft has released a statement, assuring gamers that the currency model will not block out content to those who don’t pay. Check it out below.

Eurogamer has the statement, which reads, “The Erudito Credits are a new way of unlocking content in Assassin’s Creed 3’s Multiplayer. People who have little time can use Erudito Credits as a shortcut to unlock game items from level 1 to 50 (excluding Prestige levels and relics rewards).”

“This is not mandatory, all items sold in Erudito Credits are also available in Abstergo Credits and can be unlocked through normal progression like previous years.”

So Erudito Credits are boosters essentially. Yesterday VG247 posted a full menu of the currency exchange rate. Check it out here:
